Emerging from Australia, The Crystalline Effect have been called “a genre bending icestorm”, combining elements of trip hop with aspects of EBM in their sound.
The band is a duo comprised of Elenor Rayner (vocals and lyrics) and Pete Crane (music) who met in 2002.
Their debut album Glass was released by European label Black Flames Records in 2005 resulting in great reviews worldwide, and in 2006 The Crystalline Effect released the Blurred Edges EP independantly. The Crystalline Effect is also a live entity and have played dozens of gigs all over Australia.
In 2006, Black Flames Records closed down. Now The Crystalline Effect have found a new home on Advoxya Records.
